2006 Deer Hunting Photo Contest

218 posts in this topic

Thought I might start things off...this was my first archery deer ever, and first deer period! I shot her opening morning at 17 yards, just a nice-sized doe.

Here's a little guy I removed from the city of Duluth. Just doing my part to help with the crowd control. wink.gif

A great memory from this hunt is that this little guy was the first deer taken with my new bowtech. While practicing the day before opener my old bow blew up so I raced out and bought a new one. I became confident shooting with it that same day and after the season started I made a perfect shot on a tasty deer.

Hunter's 2nd deer with me, but the first one he got to see the whole thing. I don't know who was more excited, him or me!

I watched this deer for 3 weeks prior to Michigan's Archery Season. Opening morning he came in at 6:50AM but didn't give me a shot. Opening night he came through at 6:10PM gave me a quartering away shot at 15 yds, I stuck him good and watched him go down about 40 yds later. I dont know how to score a buck and I dont think it scores that much but it would be interesting to find out some day. It has a 16.75 inside spread and it's longest G2 is 9".

It was a 9 pointer and dressed out at 202 lbs.

Here's a picture of a doe I harvested tonight! Beautiful shot placed right into her boiler room. She bled out and found her about 60 yards from where the arrow passed through. I love Montec G5 broadheads! grin.gif

Let me guess...Browning White Gold Medallion.... .270...

If not it looks like one...I used to have the 7MM and I couldn't bring myself to drag it through the woods/field any longer traded it in and got the Stainless Stalker which I don't worry about getting banged around.

Nice animal!

Can only one pic per person be submitted or is there no limit? I posted one earlier to add to the thread but plan on taking a huge buck and another doe and am wondering if that would be alright to submit them as well. I'll still post the pics just wondering for the contest part. Good luck to everyone! Keep it going!

Yes it is a .270 White Gold Mediallion. I bought it knowing how I was going to use it. I don't like banging it around but I expected it too. I have had it about 5 years and it has done really well for me.

Dave Frank


Yes he is going on the wall. The really cool thing about him is that he has a double set of horns. He has some about 1" tall horns behind his main set. Pretty neat the guy whos land we were on said he had never seen that before. You can see the pictures of the double horns in the North Dakota forum.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!
    • redlabguy
      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
